Brian and Michelle bought Hastings Honda in 2000. Brian’s work was his passion. Brian was a perfectionist and there was nothing he couldn’t fix. He was exceptionally handy. Brian would drop anything he was doing to help someone. He enjoyed bicycling, was an avid bicycle rider and twice completed the 200 miles in the DK race in Kansas. Brian was so proud of his children and he loved them very much. He absolutely adored his grandkids, they called him “Papa”. He had a laugh that could light up a room.
